And then there was a boy.....and a garden

 I got some new goodies in the post this of them being this boy stamp......And then there was a SUZI BLU for UNITY STAMPS.......available from THE STAMP ATTIC (not on the web site yet so just give Wendy a call!)

 ...... I really like this stamp......he is so quirky................the background was made with spray inks and a circle stencil and then a PRIMA flower mask...........and then I wrote on the page..........was still nervous but I took the plunge.....still not that happy with the way it looks...........the spots helped!

 And now for the garden......mine that is!!! Thought I'd show you this view of my back garden (with very weed covered pond)'s getting pretty full!

 Both these plants are PHLOMIS......the top one is the more delicate pink one while the one at the bottom is the far more robust yellow version (not quite in flower yet)........I love the way the flowers appear at intervals around the stem.

Ooh I love this - the stamp looks cool! And I really like your writing - I think the writing really makes the page come alive.
Your garden is looking great too (but maybe you don't have an 8 year old boy walloping a football into everything!)
